Integrating dedicated solutions with Jira
Some dedicated test management tools offer integration with the Jira platform, making testing with Jira more effective. These technologies frequently offer access to standard test management features and the ability to reuse test cases and share objects across different projects. But because these integrated solutions don’t provide full integration with Jira, there are still several drawbacks to this approach.
- Synchronizing databases between the test management tool and Jira is a constant battle
- Testers must continue to manage permissions for artifact mapping
- Various browsers offer different restrictions, complicating testing protocols
- Depending on how well the integration works in an open-source environment, testers may need to create a variety of workarounds
